I know that in Scotland there were such things as thirled wagons. I have also read that these displayed both the operating company (e.g. colliery) and the railway company (presumably who owned the wagon). Now, many of the pictures of Scottish P.O. wagons have no markings that I can see denoting a railway, so were "normal" privately owned wagons based north of the border too?

And were there any restrictions on privately owned wagons operating north of the border? Or maybe if they were registered by an English railway they were deemed to be safe?

I'll have a crack at the CRA forum Mike!

By the way; well done on the publicity for your wagon kit in BRM!


All the best

Ah; that's the huge dose of blood thinning and cholesterol drugs in my system; the real re-plumbing exercise is on the 10th of October! Sorry; that's a little off subject!!

I've found quite a bit on the CRA website on private owner wagons and as I'm not allowed to go anywhere for now I'll dig in a bit further!


All the best; and thanks!


Peter

Hi Mike.

From the CRA Forum I find:-

"... across all society between 1900 and the outbreak of The Great War. You have to be right about the wagons at Carrongrove picture, most of the thirling arrangements expired between 1910 and 1913, and the predominance of dumb buffers is a safe bet for pre-1914. The CARRONGROVE hopper looks new ..."
